Santa Catalina

4.1
Since Santa Catalina became known in the international surfing community in the 1970s, it has done well to maintain its identity as a tucked-away fishing village. Surfers who stumbled on the formidable waves must have decided to keep it a secret, because the village still enjoys a refreshing lack of touristic development. Still, a holiday in Santa Catalina can be a comfortable affair, with a few local restaurants and cafes set in pleasant beachside buildings, along with a small number of surf shacks and budget accommodations. Plan my Panama trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
